Webinar! Issues Impacting Access to HIV Care for Young African American Males Living with HIV/AIDS

Hosted by Parkland Health & Hospital System

Recording Date: May 29, 2013 at 12:00 pm CT

Speakers: Jay Ohagi, PhD

Target Audience: Nurses, Physicians, Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, Dentist, Dental Assistants, Registered Dental Hygienists, Social Workers and others.

Brief Description:  One in four new HIV infections occurs in youth between the ages 13 and 24; nearly 60% of these occur in African Americans. More new infections occurred among young African Americans than any other ethnic or racial group. In 2010, 38% of new infections among African American males occurred in this same age group (13-24 years). It is documented that young African American males are disproportionately affected by HIV. Low rates of HIV testing, high incidence of late diagnosis and limited access to care also contribute to the prevalence of HIV/AIDS in the African American community. This training session will focus on the factors responsible for the underutilization of HIV services among young African American males.

Learning Objectives: At the end of this webcast, participants will be able to:

    1. Explore the socio-cultural characteristics of the young African American male population.
    2. Identify at least 3 barriers to HIV testing and care for young African American males.
    3. Discuss how these barriers are associated with their health outcomes.
